Review: Robert Ellis switches to keys on ‘Texas Piano Man’
Robert Ellis, "Texas Piano Man" (New West)
Texans play guitar. Stevie Ray Vaughan? Willie Nelson? Buddy Holly? Johnny "Guitar" Watson? Guitarists. Elton John is not a Texan, but when he recorded "Texas Love Song" (a deep-cut gem), the tune featured not piano, but guitar.
A few feel-good moments to remember from NY Fashion Week
NEW YORK (AP) — Fashion Week has ended in New York, leaving a trail of sequins and feathers, worn-out stilettos and blisters and traffic jams. But sometimes, fashion feels good: there were some moments of genuine, happy emotion. Here are a few feel-good moments of the week:
BARRY IN THE HOUSE
No, Michael Kors didn't make that orange bedazzled "Copa" jacket that Barry Manilow wore to perform at the designer's show. We're not sure who did, but it was fabulous.
Kors throws a ’70s bash fashion show
Michael Kors throws a ’70s bash with Barry Manilow on stage
NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Kors threw a fashion show worthy of Studio 54 with Barry Manilow belting "Copacabana" on a glittery stage and rock muse Patti Hansen walking the runway Wednesday.
His crowd, seated inside a Wall Street ballroom, went wild for both on the closing day of New York Fashion Week as he rolled out shaggy coats and feather boas, sparkly gowns in neon purple and electric blue, and flirty ruffles on dresses and skirts, all worthy of the heady '70s.
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Cher, Barry Manilow and Dave Chappelle are among entertainers performing at the Borgata this summer to mark the Atlantic City casino's 15th anniversary.
The shows join an entertainment schedule that already includes Britney Spears, who is booked for three sold-out shows July 19-21.
The casino is also adding a second show with ex-Beatles drummer Ringo Starr on June 1.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Singer Barry Manilow is returning to Las Vegas for shows starting this month at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
Westgate Resorts founder and CEO David Siegel says in a statement that Manilow is "an icon and one of the world's greatest performers."
The 74-year-old Manilow had a residency at the same theater from 2005 to 2010 when the resort known as the Las Vegas Hilton. He later had a two-year stint at the Paris Las Vegas.
Barry Manilow's concert in Sugar Land drew in much more than fans on the night of Friday, Feb. 2.
Some in the crowd of people arriving at the Smart Financial Center carried instruments with them. This unusual behavior may have troubled concert performers under normal circumstances, but was more than welcome at this event.
It's Super Bowl weekend, which means you need some prime BBQ. If that's not your thing, Barry Manilow, Travis Linville and Londale offer some musical escape.
Las Vegas, a town noted for innovations in the entertainment business, has turned the idea of an artist's residency into an art form/endurance competition. In recent years, so-called "nostalgia acts" such as Rod Stewart, Donny and Marie Osmond, Celine Dion, Elton John, Cher, Barry Manilow and Garth Brooks have all set up camp in one hotel or another, churning out hundreds of gigs over the course of long-running and exclusive bookings.
Jay Gates jokes that he sometimes has a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other, depending on whom he is impersonating.
Originally from Irwin, the Boston-based entertainer makes his living as both an elementary school music teacher and performer, often assuming the personas of Rod Stewart or Barry Manilow — sometimes both in the same performance.
The 1984 Hempfield Area High School graduate will bring his Barry Manilow show to Irwin's Lamp Theatre on Jan. 13.
When I was a kid — during a brief period of time in the previous century — my friends and I would talk about how the most embarrassing thing would be for your parents to listen to your music.
Parents could listen to music — the entire Barry Manilow catalog was at their disposal — but they should not try to appear hip by referencing AC/DC, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Rush or any of the kick-butt hard rock bands of the day.
Barry Manilow is making his way to Foxwoods Resort Casino for a Saturday night, May 27, concert in the Grand Theater.
The singer-songwriter will perform a mix of his greatest hits, plus tunes from his new album, “This is my Town: Songs of New York.” Tickets to the show include a copy of the album.
Manilow’s new record came out in April and celebrates the Big Apple with such songs as “New York City Rhythm,” “On the Roof” and “The Brooklyn Bridge,” a virtual duet with the late Mel Tormé.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Barry Manilow has postponed two concerts in Los Angeles and Chicago on doctor's orders because of sprained vocal cords.
The 73-year-old singer was to perform Sunday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California, and at Allstate Arena outside Chicago on Wednesday.
A message posted Saturday night on his Facebook page said Manilow was ordered to rest, and he is "very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause."
